Food For Life Scotland
Our Food for Life Scotland team works to make good food the easy choice for everyone.
We make sure good food is not only on the menu, it is part of the conversation and a way of life in schools, hospitals, care homes, workplaces and cities.
Good food holds the key to healthier people, a healthier economy and a healthier environment.
What does ‘good food’ mean?
- Food that’s good for your health: lots of fruit and vegetables, fish and wholegrains, a bit less but better quality meat, and a lot less processed food. Good food is even better when it’s shared.
- Food that’s good for the environment: it’s in season, it’s sustainably produced, has low-climate impact and high welfare standards
- Food that’s good for the economy: it’s grown by local producers, it’s prepared by skilled and knowledgeable people, and it supports a thriving economy.
Food for Life Scotland is an evidence-based programme. Our impact report can be found here.
